    hope to start cambridge diet soon
    Hi everyone,

    I am new to this and was recommended by a friend. I am a mum to 2 girls and 6 foot tall and 18 stone. My aim is to lose 5 stone, so lots of encouragement would be gladly welcome! A bit difficult for me as well, as I am on medication for severe post natal depression, which makes you gain weight as a side effect! Feel determined to do it this time though.

    kind regards

    hi. I'm maria and am new to this too! I've just lost 8 stone with slimming world and am loving it apart from all the loose skin!!! I had severe post natal illness after my children were born and was in hospital for a time. I know how very hard it is to get into 'diet mode' when you're on medication - but you CAN do it!!! Life will get better and this horrible patch will soon pass!!
